Hello Rabbit!

The hotel that we ate lunch at yesterday had an area with some caged birds and rabbits, so I took Joelle to go and visit them. As we approached, a parrot said "Hello!". Joelle had never heard this before and it really threw her. She turned to me and said, "Daddy, that bird just talked to me." - as if to confirm that it actually DID just happen. So I replied, "Yes, they can talk". A look of wonderment and joy flooded her face. Giddy with excitement, she immediately turned around and yelled "HELLO RABBIT!" into the rabbit's cage. Apparently, she thought I meant that ALL the animals there could talk. She was a little disappointed when I explained to her what was going on. For a second there, she must have thought she was Dr. Dolittle.
